I am 25 years old and on October 31st of this year, I will have been diabetic for 16 years. Since I joined Juvenation, I have been noticing a word that I've never seen before when it comes to T1D talk. I know it must only have something to do with insulin pumps, because I've never been on a pump and I only see this word when the subject of the conversations are about insulin pumps. The word is BOLUS or BOLUSES. Its a new word for my vocabulary. I am starting to look into getting the pump, and I just want to know what Bolus means. Or what it stands for? Is there an equation that I can use to figure out what my Bolus is? I know I am probably wrong in this but does it have something to do with keytones? I am very curious about this. I want to learn about it.
Help me understand!
